DIY: Fun Front Door

I love a bold front door.  I always have.  I painted my front doors royal blue.  I love it and it never fails to solicit a compliment.  It is a great backdrop for photos and holiday wreaths.  In Europe it is more common to  have a boldly painted front door, and we Americans are just figuring it all out.  Take a cue from these  photos and grab a quart of paint!

My friend, Min, is very trusting and when I said that she should paint her front door yellow her response was, "Approved. When do we start."  I love that!

Looks pretty great, no?  She did a great job!


  1. Oooh I LOOOVE the blue!! I painted our front door a bold shade of red a few weeks ago, and I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made to our house's curb appeal. Oh, and it doesn't show as much dirt which is always a bonus :)

  2. Thank you Jenny! I love a red door! You are right, it is amazing the difference a painted door makes. I will check out your blog:) Thanks again for your comment.


  3. I like the emerald green door because it looks refreshing to me. I don't see a lot of houses with green doors, so that one really caught my attention. It’s great because not only it gives the door a cool appearance, but it enhances the beauty of the whole property as well.
